Out West Flies

Recommended Posts

Mike: Addy Please.

 

I got carried away and tied about 20 of the little buggers so there will be a little extra some thing in your stocking. :D

Flys are done! Please send address!

 

I tied 4xL sz 14 Olive Boufaces. I would send pics, but I can't figure out how to reduce the size of pics to an acceptable level.

 

Thanks for adding me to this swap, I am glad now that I did it!

Chris :P

If you would be so kind as to update the pattern under my name i would appreciate it. I sent the "dead chickens". They are a variation of the renegade that i have heard local people call that. I was trying a new hopper idea and they really looked weird. After getting back some top class flies from another swap i didn't want to send some bad hoppers. These dead chickens almost always produce good strikes any-where in Colorado that i have been, especially when there is no real hatches going on.

I had already sent before reading that you wanted padded envelopes...i used 6x9 manillas...sorry. They should hold up...they made it through the last swap.

No problem! I made the change to the tyer list on page one. I may have a couple of extra padded envelopes (if I can find them) :dunno: If I do I'll just transfer over the address and postage.

Mike, PLEASE don't bother with it. As long as they get to you (should by Saturday) the return should be just fine. If not, it is on me to learn. But they should be just fine. I doubt that the stamps the guy put on there would transfer anyway.

Only ONE week left! :yahoo:

 

The list on page one has been updated. Pat's flies came in Saturday (THANKS PAT!) Only one tyer has not asked for an addy or replied that flies are on the way and I sent a reminder this afternoon, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :rolleyes:

Hey gang!!

 

I just received JeepClowns flies last night bringing our total to 9 of 12 done!! I know of two more that are on the way. Only one tyer has not responded to my PM's inquiring as to how it was going and he hasn;t logged on for about a month, so we may be one tyer short. (Occassionaly it happens.) :dunno:

 

I'll send back one of your flies to each of you, along with the one's from everyone else..

 

In case, you know the man, please contact him and let him know and ask him to get back to me ASAP in case he's just tied up with "life", as I anticipate getting the flies out early next week.

 

Thanks to all of you for your follow through. It's been a prettey darn good swao and the flies I've recieved so far look great!! ;)

Well thanks for saying so, but... Actually, this has been the easiest swap I've run! 11/12 of you guys have been outstanding with your communications BTW - (THE #1 factor in a good swap from either the tyer OR swapmeister's side), AND sent all the postage!! :headbang:

 

I'm looking forward to getting the last two sets of flies and getting these sent out to you guys. Actually, I'd love to hear how well they fished for you after you get them!!!!

Please keep the fly. I have plenty! I use the boufaces (a John Barr pattern) for trout in a dead drift in the river followed by a lift, then short strips back. I also tie them on 2/0 hooks for pike. Can't wait to see the rest of the flies! :o
